Cody Rhodes Reacts to the Darby Allin vs. Jimmy Havoc Issues with Fans, More


AEW announced over the weekend that Jimmy Havoc will face Darby Allin on Wednesday night’s edition of AEW Dynamite. The winner will get a title shot against AEW World Champion Chris Jericho on next week’s show. When several fans took issue with this on Twitter, Cody Rhodes responded with the following,

“Quality of wins plays a factor. Not unlike college football. Jimmy beat 2 other major players in the @CrackerBarrel Clash and…Darby went the distance with me and defeated a legend in Cima. (That match to be featured on “AEW: DARK” this Tuesday. Hosted by @tonyschiavone24)”

When a fan claimed that Rhodes was backtracking on “wins and losses meaning something” in AEW, Rhodes said, “Not a backtrack. Not quality of matches. ‘Quality of wins’. Similar to the AP poll. Per example…a team in the NCAA with a very tough schedule(ala the SEC) versus a team with a softer schedule. That factors as you come to a ranking. We are approaching records being public/weekly.”

Speaking of AEW, the company released some additional highlights from last week’s “Dynamite” broadcast. You can check them out below:
